Prior to his untimely death, Justice Antonin Scalia revealed to Bryan Garner, author of the book “Nino and Me,” that he “spoke favorably” of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
Wall Street Journal reports:
“Justice Scalia thought it was most refreshing to have a candidate who was pretty much unfiltered and utterly frank,” said the late jurist’s literary collaborator, Bryan Garner, a legal dictionary editor who spent two weeks in 2016 traveling with Justice Scalia through several Asian countries.
The justice thought well of Scott Walker, the Wisconsin governor whose campaign for the Republican nomination stalled, said Mr. Garner, whose memoir of a decadelong friendship, “Nino and Me,” comes out Tuesday. “But he was fascinated by the fact that Trump was so outspoken in an unfiltered way, and therefore we were seeing something a little more genuine than a candidate whose every utterance is airbrushed,” Mr. Garner said in an interview.
Garner told the Wall Street Journal that Scalia would have most likely approved of President Trump’s judicial nominations.
President Donald Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to replace Scalia at the United States Supreme Court.
On April 10th, Judge Neil Gorsuch was sworn in as a Supreme Court Justice.
As The Gateway Pundit‘s Jim Hoft reported, Scalia was found dead last Feburary at the Cibolo Creek Creek Ranch in Texas.
Justice Scalia was found with a pillow over his head.
